Center asked an aircraft flying IFR:
"Say altitude."

... and the pilot came back with:
"Altitude."

The controller at center did not miss a beat and came right back with:
"Say 'cancel IFR.'"

.... to which the pilot of the aircraft said correct altitude and "sorry" -- nothing more.

Had to be some "got ya" laughs in aircraft on the same frequency. (By the way, it was MPLS Center.)
